Community Partners

Although IthacaSTEM Associates must be under the Ithaca City School District, there are other STEM-related organizations in Ithaca and Tompkins County that provide a wonderful variety of classes, events, activities, and resources for local kids. We're pleased to count the following organizations among our community partners.

Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom

Founded in 2003, the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom Project's mission is to engage community members from around Cayuga Lake, and throughout the Finger Lakes Region, in the future of our water resources through experiential education, engagement and communication. Along with hands-on science cruises for school and community groups, the Floating Classroom also hosts Trout in the Classroom, a growing network of elementary school classes that raise live trout.
